  1. My DSM is back in the original state. I cannot express my thanks to IG-88 for his incredible advice. @phinemariatry to follow IG-88's reply here and you should be fine. In case you struggle I will try to help you as IG-88 helped me. Just PM me here and I will help you. Many MANY thanks to IG-88 for his knowledge and willingness. You do not see too many people like him nowadays. Cheers.
  2. Axel, I am following the advice by IG-88 now, you need some experience there, but it is followable. IG-88 is communicating with me and really does extreme good job. I will report how it all ended up with some details, that could help you as well. But there are some things you need to do, like create a linux USB etc etc, which you should be able to find elsewhere, how to do that. By the way in my case I have updated to 6.2.4 which does crash on the HP Micro Gen8 apparently, so the process basically is to revert to 6.2.3...
  3. Thanks for the valuable input, I will boot into a linux distro to check. Actually I am not really sure if I applied update 3 or 6.2.4. I will also check the C1e (but this is unlikely). I will read the article and come back. I still have the original USB though - would that help in any way? Is there a way how to tell what update I actually applied using the Linux bootable distro?
  4. Well there is another user having the same issue. Question is, what was wrong and more importantly, how to recover from the state?
  5. Hello, I have reported this in the Updates reporting section as well, if this is against the rules - please delete my post. If there is someone that can help - will be much appreciated. Outcome of the update: UNSUCCESSFUL - DSM version prior update: DSM 6.2.3-25426 Update 2 - Loader version and model: Jun's Loader v1.03b DS3615XS - Using custom extra.lzma: No - Installation type: BAREMETAL - HP ProLiant MicroServer GEN8 Here are some of my details - please advice if you can: After applying this update, the system rebooted and it boots into synoboot, like normal. However the system is not visible in the network (checked also my DHCP if it got a different IP address by chance). I have tried to create a new USB from scratch. I used the same serial number in the grub.conf file. The system boots up, gets it's IP address from DHCP based on Reservation. Synology assistant can see the device, but the only option is to Recover it. Pressing recover reboots the machine and it is basically in the same state as before. There is no way how to use a different pat file. I have left all disks in the device. I have 3 disks, which each has it's own volume and shares on it. The first disk is used as the Synology primary disk, so I guess the configuration is located on the first disk. Also the first disk contains my Docker image. I have found a .dss backup file from July 2020, that could be perhaps used. Does anyone have an idea what to try to make the system back? Maybe disconnect the disks to try to make the DSM up again and then reconnect them and upload the .dss file with configuration? Thanks in advance for any advice. My guess here is that they removed the drivers for the Onboard NICs, as I see members that have the same system but with Intel NIC and no problem. So maybe also applying the extras.lzma would make sense?

  8. Hello community. What if the output of my Xpenology (HP Microserver Gen8, bare metal, Juns loader 1.03b with no extra lzma, Version DS3615xs / 6.2.3 25426, no PCIE Network card, just the stock ones) ls /dev/synoboot* looks like this? /dev/synoboot /dev/synoboot1 /dev/synoboot2 /dev/synoboot3 Is it safe to install the normal way via the Control panel? Or the script has to be executed before? Thanks in advance.
  9. Thanks for great advice! Everything worked as expected. The 10 minutes when the box was not responding to ping took hours Hope this helps also others with same config. Gerat work!
  10. Found it: 1) Enable SSH and ssh into your DiskStation 2) Become root ( sudo -i ) 3) Make a mount point ( mkdir -p /tmp/mountMe ) 4) cd into /dev ( cd /dev ) 5) mount synoboot2 to your mount point ( mount -t vfat synoboot2 /tmp/mountMe ) Now I see the extra.lzma modified that has 4MiB in size so now I just replace the file with the original from 1.03b that has some 1,8MiB ? Then I use the web interface to manually install the DSM_DS3615xs_25426.pat? Please correct me if I am wrong.
  11. Can you please tell me how to overwrite the extra.lzma from the synoboot2 partition of the USB boot drive? I have tried to mount it but I got some error that I can not understand really.
  12. Thanks for this very useful advice. Can someone share the original extra.lzma file from Jun's loader 1.03b for us pretty please?
  13. In that case, what should I do when I wanted to upgrade to 6.2.3 when on the lzma for 6.2.X with DS3615xs? Do I have to create a new USB bootable without the extra lzma and the pat file of 6.2.3?
  14. I am using extra lzma + 6.2.2 DS3615xs. Is there a way how to check the version of the extra lzma?
  15. Well I use extra LZMA but I did not find the courage to try the update on my Gen8....yet. So I sort of have the same question.
  16. Well, I must admit, that this community is one of the best I've seen on the Interwebs. After 2 days I managed to make the HP Microserver Gen8 to work with the latest DSM update. All credits go to Jun and this community! Here is what I did in final to migrate form 1.02b + 3615sx running 6.1.x to current 1.03b + modded extras.lzma on 6.2.2 24922: 1. Prepare the USB like normally using 1.03b and editing grub.cfg (as you can find in the forums here) 2. download the modded extras.lzma from this topic and copy and replace the file onto your USB drive 2nd partition. 3. download the proper .pat file and extract rd.gz and zimage files and copy and replace them on the USB drive Your USB drive for migration is now ready. 4. Put the USB into the (internal) USB port and boot up 5. Follow the standard Migrate process that you can find on these forums Note there will be one more reboot than usual. Thanks so much to you guys for helping me doing this. I wish you all good luck and health during these hard times of Covud-19. P.S. Also the Let's Encrypt certificate now works too. You rock
  17. Thanks for the reply. So far I can tell that the test with blank drive went 100% OK with no surprises. One thing I noticed is, that after the first boot and install it rebooted once again. But then I was on the latest version running OK. Now I am going thru the real deal, currently Migration is being done. Fingers crossed. Last reboot now and I will be able to tell how it went. Will report back soon hopefully.
  18. Change of plans, I am removing all SATA drives and just put one testing drive into the box. I will lboot the prepared USB with the modded extra.lzma and the 2 other files taken from the 6.2.2 file. Will do a clean install and then try to update to see if the box goes brick or not. If not, I will prepare a USB the same way, put all original drives back and boot from it to try to perform the Migration process, while using the same pat file of 6.2.2. Will put kids to sleep and do it. My report will follow.
  19. I will try to do the Migrate process with the USB with updated files from the 6.2.2 pat file and the modded extras.lzma file first...
  20. Yeah, sure. I came thru a completely bricked system yesterday to a working system now, so yeah, I have backups
  21. Will try this evening and report. Already have the files and the USB ready with replaced 3 files...Thanks.
  22. Hello community. I have been really struggling yesterday after I (without research) updated from Jun's loade 1.02b DSM 6.1.X 3615sx to Jun's loader 1.03b and DSM DSM 6.2-23739 - HP Microserver Gen8 bare metal. I migrated everything successfully and then hit the Update button (badum ts). Then I figured that this is probably due to the internal NICs not being supported any more. My NICs are Broadcom BCM5720. I would like to have the latest DSM running, due to security patches and also due my Let's encrypt certificate. It does not seem to work now with the older build. Question: Is there ANY way how to make the Internal NICs work with the latest DSM or the only possible way is to get a supported NIC? I was not really able to find any solution for this, just putting in a PCIEx NIC. And if the PCIEx NIC is the only possible way, do you have specific NIC models as well as some advice, how to perform this on an existing DSM 6.2-23739 bare metal installation? THanks
